Ah Finally ! These pics give better indication. The grille is the typical Honda one. But surprised that the rear of the car looks so simple ! For a car above 8 lacs i expected better looks from rear !! But it does look slightly bigger than NHC !

The pics are much better now. Looks kind of like- i want to be a 3 series copy- look from the rear!

And the front would have looked nice had it been an MUV competitor to the Innova.

Now, this one clearly makes it a N(square)Honda city! The wheel cap design is a dead giveaway. However, why so big door handles? and they look outdated!

Disappointed to see this design. Honda is try to make their cars look so boring. First victim was the new Civic design in NA & EU. Then came Accord with all new chunky looks and here is a best seller completely spoilt by god knows who?I wish they could go to the great GG or I.D.E.A. to get some fantabulous designs.

The High mounted brake light is exactly like the one on my NHC so it is definately a honda but still doubtful if it is the new city

The car looks more like a Hyundai. I doubt its the new City. Could this be the new Elantra?

It looks like there's a Shakuni Mama in the NHC... otherwise this design won't come out.

Look at the ac vents on teh center console- Identical to the current City- so this could well be the facelifted City

If it is, then its next generation City. There is no face lifting done here.

I have a feeling its altogether newer model coming in the segment between NHC and Civic,as this car does not match either both the cars in anykind of curves,but they have maintained to match it to the Honda Car Siblings.

New Honda City is more like a Sedan version of Honda Freed, Door Handle, Wheel cap design and Front Grill design is almost the same, and freed is powered by 120bhp i-vtec

now let us see the dimensions

Compact dimensions: 4,215 mm L 1,695 mm W 1,715 mm H (FF vehicles) or 1,720 mm H for vehicles equipped with the Skyroof.

Reduce 200mm from hight and add it to length, new city will be ready

I think someone who know photoshop in Team-bhp can try creating a better image since we have side and tail profile also avilable


Maannn, am i becoming a Honda Fan?
